Hey, Christiana, thanks for the comment! Good point, let me clarify . . .
I present via distance nearly every day (part of my professional role with WebEx in my organization), though this is the first time I have presented my research (the entire bit, to date) and the first time a Lancaster research seminar has been presented from a distance (rather than just attended via distance). Thus, it was new for me and for them.
Goodness, that is what my mind told me I said, though re-reading the post it seems that was murky at best. Thanks for pointing it out!!
